Disruptive selection of shell colour in land snails: a mark–recapture study of Euhadra peliomphala simodae

Shun Ito & Junji Konuma
Many theoretical studies have suggested that disruptive selection plays an important role in phenotypic divergence, but few studies have determined the action of disruptive selection on phenotypic divergence via field studies. This study investigated the effect of disruptive selection on shell colour polymorphism in the Japanese land snail Euhadra peliomphala simodae to determine whether extreme phenotypes of snail shell colour are favored over intermediate phenotypes. We conducted field surveys on an oceanic island with black,...
